Ebi Mayo Recipe (エビマヨ) – Fried Prawn in Creamy Mayonnaise Sauce

Ebi Mayo

My organic Ebi Mayo recipe, which is my favorite prawn dish. It’s so yummy! I bet you will be addicted once you try this dish! I got the idea from a Japanese Izakaya we used to go to in Shibuya, Tokyo. My husband also loves this dish and he was happy to see that I attempted to make it since we can no longer go to our regular izakaya in Tokyo.

Servings 2 people


  • Mixing Bowl (Medium)


  • 10 Black Tiger Shrimps or Prawns Wild Caught
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Katakuriko (Potato Starch)
  • Sesame Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Dry-Powdered Parsley

Mayonnaise Sauce

  • 4 tbsp Japanese Mayonnaise *If you can't get this, see the note below.
  • 2 tsp Ketchup
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Rice Vinegar
  • 2 tsp Milk



  • Place all the ingredients for the Mayonnaise sauce in a medium mixing bowl. Mix well.
  • Prepare the prawns by twisting off the heads of the prawns, then shell and devein. I leave their tails intact for the look/presentation.
  • Put a cut on the prawn from their back until the middle. This is for presentation and for how it will cook.
  • Dry the prawns by using paper towels. Remove any water on the surface of the prawn.
  • Season the prawns with salt & pepper.
  • Lightly cover the prawns with potato starch powder.


  • Stir fry/deep fry the prepared prawns with sesame oil or salad oil.
  • Sauce the prawns by placing them and the mayonnaise sauce in a frying pan and stir them with low heat for a little bit.
  • Put them on a plate and sprinkle parsley for look.


If you can’t get Japanese mayonnaise, you can easily make it yourself with this recipe.
